Anyone for Cricket!

Wartbiter to be precise. This is another old transparency I scanned from 1983 but would really like to go back and get some digital images (assuming they are still there). These amazing (and very rare) bush crickets are only known from three sites in the UK and get their name because it is believed they were used to bite warts off the skin with their powerful jaws.
